subdomain for mobile site

Running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 32bit, server is Nginx

I’m looking at the networking tab for my droplet and i added the following:

Type: CNAME Hostname: Value: TTL: 43200

I don’t want the mobile version to be the same as the desktop version. I have two seperate index.html files. How do i point the to load the mobile version? Thanks.

You need to setup two different virtual hosts in Nginx, in one of them the server_name must be and points to the directory where index.html for the desktop site is located use root directive for this.

And the other virtual host should have in its server_name and its root directive should point to the other directory where the other index.html is located.

Hope this helps you.
